  • It might not be the best art museum in Korea, but it is still very good. The displays change regularly and are usually presented well. It has an admirable permanent collection and they host tours and special events regularly. As expected there is a shop with souvenirs, but there is also a children's museum to introduce children to the art world. Ad to this the fact that the museum itself in located inside the large park that also houses a zoo and a large amusement park and you have a winning day out.
  • Love this place. My 1st time visiting a Museum of this kind. The place is really big. Lots of exhibits around.
  • Very nice gallery, it was not crowded when I went so I made the experience a lot better !
  • Worth a visit! Lovely museum.
  • I love this museum. It is beautifully situated up a mountain and is filled with the best Korean art of the past 100 years. It is a great way to see Korea's move from a Hermit Kingdom towards modernity.
